Bailing out the planet- Video by Chuck Baclagon

From Greenpeace Making Waves

Here’s some video from the inspiring action today in Brussels. More than 340 activists were arrested and the activists were able to block the exits of the building for more than 2 hours. All of the activists have been released from jail and while some of the activists need to be hospitalized because of police brutality, there we no serious injuries. Thank you the activists that came from 20 different countries to take action and to all of you that followed the action and offered your support. Read more and see photos here.
